The Celtics Summer additions.

If you asked Doc Rivers how the Celtics summer was as an organization, I imagine him saying it was pretty good. With that being said, the Celtics drafted and signed some very talented players. Starting off with the "Jet" Jason Terry. I have no doubt that Jason will take some of the stress off of KG, Rondo, and Paul Pierce. Terry is a 6"2 guard that brings energy, points, and not to mention, him flying away on his JET whenever he hits a big shot. But on a serious note, he brings a winning attitude. With the help of Dirk Nowitzki, he took down the Miami Heat to win the NBA championship in 2011. Now, the "Jet" has even more help surrounding him since joining the Celtics. In my opinion, I see Terry filling the spot in the starting five for the former Celtic: Ray Allen

Next, Kris Joseph should be able to contribute to the C's. He is a 6"7 forward that almost reminds me of Kevin Durant. Joseph has a nice little mid-range game, but he can also blow by you for an easy layup. The only concern I see for him is his strength. There were many times in college where he would attempt a layup, and an opposing player would take his "lunch money". The NBA has bigger, faster, and stronger players. He will eventually have to get stronger to be successful at the NBA level.

Also, Avery Bradley is months ahead of recovery according to his doctors. He is a good player that got the hang of the NBA towards the postseason.

Jared Sullinger was also drafted by the Celtics. Many people see his weight as to why he slid so far down in the draft. He is a 260 pound power forward. But watching him play in the summer league games, I was impressed by his ability to hit mid-range jump shots. But sometimes, he took it a little too far! In my eyes, he needs to stay on the block, and let Rondo feed him the ball....... that is if he gets that much time.

Lastly, the C's were able to get Courtney Lee. Seeing that him and J. Terry play the position, it should be interesting to see who gets that starting job by the time the season starts.

So the question is asked: Can the Celtics win it all?

Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
